The Escape

                                                    Decisions diluted

                                                                by another’s dreams,

                                                    The compromise inherent

                                                                is not as it seems,

                                                   One drop of liquid

                                                               from the fisher king’s vial

                                                    Revives the escape

                                                              of one who has known,

                                                   Of time before time,

                                                              to the vision of void,

                                                   When earth was the taking

                                                              and love was the joy.
